Symptomatic Stimulation

Those gentle whispers
Warm exhalation,
Auditory stimulation…

Sweet tastes
Tease lingual surfaces;
Soft palpation…
Febrile temperatures rise

Fragrant perfusion…
Aromatic attraction.

Proximal positioning igniting
Thoracic fires. Consumed
With uncontrolled palpitations…
Physical addiction

I prescribe…
More of me


Day 17 of NaPoWriMo is a dictionary poem.  I chose the following 10 words (among others) from a medical dictionary I have on the shelf and wrote a poem: disoriented, exhalation, lingual, febrile, palpitation, palpation, perfusion, proximal, thoracic, trembles.

Unfortunately it’s a little late because I was on the road all day, but I hammered out most of it on my phone yesterday and wrapped it up this morning.
